Often mistaken for a demon, Glyphica's powers were actually stolen from a djinn. Although she was once a Midnighter, her desire for power and notoriety were greater than her aptitude for magic. Frustrated and resentful, she spent decades searching for a source of power to fuel her ambitions.

When she finally succeeded in her goal of trapping an ancient djinn, she refused to bargain it's freedom for a mere wish. Instead she absorbed the djinn's life essence, binding it to her body through the use of fel rituals and arcane glyphs tattooed to her in gold. She would finally be unmissable, undeniable, and unstoppable.

Not without consequence, though. The person she was before was totally subsumed and her considerable intellect was all that remained of her old self. Glyphica was born: a creature of wanton strength whose only desire was to seek more and more power.

DefeatCOTEnd.png The result of essentially turning oneself into a human demon-summoning circle.

  • It is unknown if this is the reason why she has horns and a tail, though it is a credible explanation.
  • By layering several magical rituals, Glyphica adapted the power of the strongest demon-binding magics to shackle nearly any source of power to herself.
  • She typically doesn't correct others when they refer to her as a demon, djinn, or otherwise. Not entirely human anymore, either.

Badge origins path.png A cautionary tale against wild magical experimentation and reckless ambition.

  • Discovered that as far as binding supernatural entities to oneself, genies provided a favorable ratio of reality-bending power with minimum harm to one's soul.
  • Her mind was incapable of handing such a vast cognitive paradigm shift and her memory was purged with only hints of her former personality remaining.
  • Glyphica knows what she is and why she came to be, but can't recall who she was and frankly doesn't care to.

V badge DemonDefeatBadge.png You might not consider her strictly "evil."

  • Not seeking power for some nefarious scheme. It is her core motivation and an end unto itself.
  • When the binding wiped her mind, all that was left for her new self to latch on to was the quest to become more powerful.
  • Willing to work with Heroes and Villains alike to get what she wants; use of indiscriminate violence makes her a public danger.

Badge Holiday10DefeatLadyWinter.png Glyphica's nudity is the ultimate power move. She exudes magic and confidence.

  • She resembles a living, latex-skinned mannequin; doesn't present genitals or nipples.
  • Her eyes pulse with light and spew out raw magical energy.
  • She often shimmers when she moves; unknown if this intentional or not.

Powers & Vulnerabilities

"Power, control, security, all of those are just fancy ways of saying that you're afraid, and you want to not be afraid anymore.
People will do a lot to avoid fear, even become the monsters they're afraid of."

SuperStrength Rage.png Supernatural Strength

  • Magically infused with terrible strength, Glyphica doesn't fight her enemies so much as fling them about or tear them apart.

Invulnerability Invincibility.png Invulnerability

  • Despite being soft to the touch, bullets deform and crumble against her skin.

  • Sometimes grows wings, though not needed. Horns and tail may also be ornamental? Likely able to grow other parts.

BeastMastery SummonDireWolves.png Solo Act

  • Being a haughty, power-hungry killing machine doesn't earn you many friends.
  • Willing to work with others to get what she wants, then discard them.

MentalControl MindControl.png Mind Control

  • Through the use of endurance-sapping effects, can be left exhausted and vulnerable.

Quirks & Hooks

"I'm not bad, I'm just drawn that way"
